Hey all,

Lately, I've been having a lot of problems with my computer ever since I started up my computer today. Things like
  • Sound doesn't work
  • Network connections don't work
  • Many services don't run
  • Computer takes a long time to log in
  • Taskbar doesn't display windows
  • Some programs won't start, like MalwareBytes
  • System restore doesn't work
  • Unable to copy and paste
  • Unable to see users connected to the computer or user names in the task manager

I tried to do some restores but it gives me error 1068. If anyone can help me with this, it would be greatly appreciated

Right when I started up my computer everything seemed normal, then my Catalyst Control Center for my ATI graphics card came up with an error message saying something had gone wrong with it. Then when I started to try my other programs that's when I noticed all those other symptoms

By gone wrong what do you mean what was the exact wording on the error message?

Was it something to the effect that the GPU has recovered from a serious error?

Are you able to use it?

Here's the error message
Catalyst Control Center: Host application has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

and the error signature:
AppName: ccc.exe AppVer: 2.0.0.0 AppStamp:4c90e454
ModName: mscorwks.dll ModVer: 2.0.50727.3625 ModStamp:4e154c98
fDebug: 0 Offset: 0005df0a

I'm still able to use it though and my GPU hasn't been through any errors since I installed it

I don't think this issue is because of my graphics card though. The last time I used my computer before this happened I was using Advanced System Care 5 and cleaning up my files, I'm not sure if this might be of any help or not

In regards to Advanced System Care:

Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:

• Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.

The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Understanding The Registry.

• Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work.

• Not all registry cleaners create a backup of the registry before making changes. If the changes prevent the system from booting up, then there is no backup available to restore it in order to regain functionality. A backup of the registry is essential BEFORE making any changes to the registry.

• Improperly removing registry entries can hamper malware disinfection and make the removal process more difficult if your computer becomes infected. For example, removing malware related registry entries before the infection is properly identified can contribute to system instability and even make the malware undetectable to removal tools.

• The usefulness of cleaning the registry is highly overrated and can be dangerous. In most cases, using a cleaner to remove obsolete, invalid, and erroneous entries does not affect system performance but it can result in "unpredictable results".

Unless you have a particular problem that requires a registry edit to correct it, I would suggest you leave the registry alone. Using registry cleaning tools unnecessarily or incorrectly could lead to disastrous effects on your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again. For routine use, the benefits to your computer are negligible while the potential risks are great.
You may have to reformat and reinstall Windows.
